Bears vs. Vikings: Fantasy football projections featuring Brandon Marshall, Adrian Peterson, Jay Cutler

US PRESSWIRE

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 13 matchup between the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings.

The Minnesota Vikings host the Chicago Bears at 1:00 ET in Week 14. This game has some sudden playoff implications after the Bears lost the NFC North division lead. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for this game, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Chicago Bears

Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall are basically the entire offense. Oh, they try to get Matt Forte involved, and occasionally troll defenses by throwing it to Alshon Jeffery or Devin Hester, but make no mistake. This offense is literally Cutler and Marshall, and nobody has stopped them yet, so expect those two go keep it going. Maybe Forte gets some accidental fantasy points in the process.

Minnesota Vikings

When was the last time you saw a running back shred his knee ligaments and somehow get better? Adrian Peterson did, that's who. He's openly talking about chasing Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, so expect a healthy load from him even against Chicago's stiff defense.

As for the rest of the offense? Ehhhh.... Percy Harvin got shut down for the year, leaving Christian Ponder without his favorite checkdown weapon. It could be an ugly game if Ponder can't utilize any of his other receiving weapons. If you're starting Ponder, you're probably not in the fantasy playoffs anyway.
